Am I the only one in North Nevada?

Located in Gardnerville NV, fifteen miles east of Lake Tahoe, fifteen miles south of Carson City, fifty miles south of Reno.
A little over four-hundred miles north of Las Vegas. :wink:

Kind of late in life but I finally have some decent equipment that I am willing to share for in-kind help with some of my projects.
Heavy duty 4' x 10' flat steel build table (Not currently in use!), 2-post lift, TIG, MIG, Gas welders, HF Tube bender, Vertical mill, Horizontal mill, Lathes, ALLEN Electronic Test center with oscilloscope, engine hoist, engine stands, and the usual small tools.
Seems the state vehicle here is either the 4x4 or backhoe, not sports-cars. :BH:

I just looked through the build logs and there are currently about 100 "active" builds with a post within the last 12 months. So we really are quite a small group crazy people with enough skill to build a vehicle. Considering some builders are from Canada, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Ukrane, etc. That averages less than 2 builders per state.

To be fair I think builders who've completed their builds and perhaps don't post as often should be included in that total. They have the same if not more experience to pass on as active builders.

That was just a very wild guess. I think that does include most completed builds though as most people who have finished that are still active on this forum. Update there build logs with various updates.
You are absolutely right about guys with completed cars being able to offer great advice. I know it's so much easier working on my car now because I make a change then drive the car and see the difference. For the 1st 2 years it was mostly educated guesses work.
